How to RESERVE  1-to-1 Meetings?

We will launch the online booking system 2 weeks before the event. We will inform all participants about it by email.

Please note:

  1. You can reserve meetings with up to 3 Hosts
  2. You can book additional meetings at the Forum

Your Host is overbooked?

  1. Approach your hosts during the conference 
    See if you can arrange a short meeting informally by yourself
  2. Approach and message your Hosts via Mobile App
  3. Ask organisers:
    - Leave your mobile and email
    - We will make sure Hosts get your contacts
    - We will try to introduce you informally and face-to-face. This way you can hopefully agree with them directly on a separate meeting, formal or informal.
